West Ham Sources: Major Antonio contract update after board talks
West Ham are set to offer Michail Antonio a new deal that could keep him at the club until he is 33, Football Insider understands.
The Hammers man-of-the-moment has entered the final 12 months of his current contract and the club are keen to tie him down to an extension.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider that the club plan to offer Antonio, 30, a two-year contract with the option of a one-year extension.
The package that will be put before the spearhead will be roughly the same salary as his current agreement.
Discussions have been held at board level over the Antonio plan and now talks are set to open with the player in the coming weeks over a deal that could see him spend the rest of his career at the London Stadium.
Antonio is believed to be keen on a long-term contract at West Ham, where his status reached an all-time high at the weekend.
